Bride praised for donating wedding dress as burial clothes for stillborn babies
In 2015, Trimble realised she was never going to wear her wedding dress ever and sent it to a charity called Cherished Gowns for Angel Babies UK
Yvonne Trimble married the man of her dreams Richard Hayes in Barbados in 1995 and wore a lacy gown for her big day.
In 2015, Trimble realised she was never going to wear her wedding dress ever and sent it to a charity called Cherished Gowns for Angel Babies UK.
"Gaining the infamous "Cyprus stone" in weight times several meant that I was never going to fit into my dress again, and why would I need to – I'd already married the man of my dreams," she told The Sun.
She said she wasn't happy about the gown hanging in her closet, though they did remind her of her wonderful wedding day.

"Richard would dance around the house with it – not wearing it! – and we'd reminisce about the wonderful wedding day we'd had.
"But there comes a time when it seems silly to have it shut away when it could be useful to someone else.
"My initial thought was to offer it to a local theatre group's costume department but a friend told me about Cherished Gowns," Yvonne explained.
The charity specializes in transforming wedding dresses into little gowns for stillborns or babies who die right after birth.
"Yesterday they sent me pictures of what they had made with my dress and a mix of emotions swept over me when I received them; pride that I'd done something good, sadness that it's necessary for these gowns to have to be made, relief that I've never known this heartbreak, and a sense of thankfulness that volunteers around the country give up their time to produce such comforting garments.
"I post these pictures not to shout my worth, but to advertise the charity that does this wonderful work; they need volunteers to knit, sew, crochet and they need donations of all manner of stuff, not just dresses, so if you care to look at their website it may be that more little souls will be helped, " she wrote on her Facebook page.
The viral post has been shared over 80,000 times by Facebook users.
She later thanked everyone for their wonderful messages sent to her inbox and spreading word about the charity.
